in common? Is this a good or bad thing? Why?

Modeling of the Concept


Teacher will have an example already done of a
self portrait with a few written statements
underneath.

Guided Practice
If time permits, students can write sentences then
practice typing on computer.

Student can write color down on paper in that


color marker or pencil with assistance from peer
or teacher (My hair is red. My eyes are green. )
SEI 2- When beginning art task, teacher will show
a finished product of the self portrait and written
piece to students. Then, through guided art,
teacher will ask students to identify where the
face is, parts of the face, where they are in
proportion to other areas, and different facial
features. Teacher will use TPR to give examples of
expressions students can put on their faces. Then,
students will identify other things they will
include in their picture such as hobbies, foods,
and family. Students will work independently at
desks, then share art with their peers. Students
will be asked to read their short paragraph and
describe their picture to their peers. Students will
then report on one interesting fact they learned
about their classmate.

including pictures of themselves, family, and interests.
